How to Choose the Right Business Broadband

The Two Main Types of Broadband for Businesses:

FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) 

FTTP (Fibre to the Premise) 


FTTC uses the fibre-optic cables from the telephone exchange to the green, roadside cabinet and then, copper cable to the relevant business. 

FTTC can achieve speeds of up to 76Mbps for downloads and 19Mbps for uploads.


Fibre-optic cables transmit from the exchange all the way to your business’s premises, so no copper in the connection which allows for a significantly faster internet speed.

FTTP provides bandwidths of up to 330Mbps for downloads and 30Mbps for uploads.

                                                                                                                                 Both options are viable for a Business, but you will certainly benefit from a FTTP connection;

* The speeds are quicker.

* There is also less chance the internet will cut out half-way through an important email or call to a client.

FTTP requires additional infrastructure 

Whereas FTTC uses existing infrastructure such as the copper wires from the street cabinet, but a device is fitted into the fibre cabinet to alter the speed frequencies.

FTTP is definitely something to consider due to enhance speed, bandwidth and reliability of service.
